There is a resurgence in people wanting to get back to the land. People want to reconnect with their roots and get back to home grown and local foods. The farming lifestyle is coming back and many families are searching for land or farms. Farmland is plentiful in Tennessee whether you are looking to have a small hobby farm or you are looking for a larger more traditional farm.
What grows well in Tennessee?
Tennessee is fortunate to have an extremely long growing season. The last frost is usually in April and the first frost in October. The exact frost dates can vary quite a bit depending on your location. Community Supported Agriculture is on the rise all over Tennessee and produces a variety of goods that you just can’t find on the grocery store shelves. CSA’s are including many different types of products including fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, and dairy. Farms in Tennessee commonly grow corn, soybeans, and cotton.
When looking for farmland a thorough evaluation of the land needs to be done to determine if it will fit your needs. Depending upon what area of the state you are looking in the soil can be quite different. A heavy clay or rocky soil may not be suitable from growing what you need. Also keep in mind what structures you will need for your farming activities. Having the appropriate space for grazing space and a water source for animals is also critical. Finding a farm location that already has most of your needs met will greatly reduce the time and money you have to spend later in building your farming dream.
Always begin any home hunt with a good plan in mind but when you are looking for farmland it is critical that you have a good idea of what you will use the land for before you buy it.
